Newsletter of the 6th of June 2018 - High time for a first reply

First of all, thank you so much for filling out the interest form on the GDTF-share.com website, and thank you for your patience as we continue to work on getting to the version 1.0 release of General Device Type Format (GDTF). The response we've gotten from the industry for GDTF has been tremendous. To date, we've had over 20 companies inquire about working with GDTF.

So, what has happened since the announcement?

Well, we continue to work with the initial committed companies to further refine the specs of GDTF. As a result, the development of the standard is coming along nicely. If you haven't yet checked out the specs of GDTF, the GDTF wiki is a great place to start to learn more. Here, you will find descriptions of the file format and tutorials to help you create GDTF files.

Additionally, we've been working to prepare the official GDTF database. We're nearing the point of having a beta of the database, and will share much more information with you about this in the near future. Robe is providing GDTF a number of devices out of the gate with the beta release of the Database, and we will be actively populating it with more GDTF files over the next several weeks. Vectorworks is scheduled to support GDTF files on export with their upcoming service pack 4 (expected to be released late June 2018) and MA Lighting will support GDTF natively when the GrandMA3 console hits the streets. We will be sure to communicate with you when we have a demonstration you can try out for yourself.

There are many moving parts as we work to make GDTF a success, and we genuinely thank you for your interest. It's a great motivator for all of us. As we continue to work on this we will contact you with occasional updates, but please feel free to contact us at any time if you have specific questions you'd like to ask or support that you need. You can reach the GDTF group by emailing info@gdtf-share.com
